    Travel + Leisure magazine has awarded Palawan as the best island in world for three consecutive years. Despite this islands popularity, its only recent that Ive set foot here and despite only seeing two key cities in Palawan (El Nido and Puerto Princesa), Id have to agree that it is one amazing island.
